Gold Coast have registered their third straight win with a 28-10 victory over Penrith at Centrebet Stadium.

Built on another strong defensive effort, the Titans held the Panthers scoreless for the opening 40 minutes to lead 12-0 at halftime before going on with the job in the second half.

The Panthers did launch a second half fightback and got to within eight points of the Titans but were unable to convert their scoring opportunities into points as the Titans defence held strong time and time again.

The home side scored two tries through Wes Naiqama and Tom Humble, the latter coming off an 80m runaway intercept try against the run of play.

Two late tries to Titans winger Kevin Gordon sealed the victory and extended the final winining marging out to 18 points.

The victory gave the Titans three straight wins heading into Friday night's local derby blockbuster against the Brisbane Broncos at Skilled Park.

The Titans opened the scoring through tries to Greg Bird and David Mead, with Aidan Sezer nailing both conversions to give the visitors a 12-0 halftime lead.

The Panthers hit back through Naiqama to reduce the margin to 12-4 but Titans centre Steve Michaels gave the Gold Coasters some breathing space with a try in his 50th game for the club.

However, the home side refused to go away and launched a fightback when Humble scored an intercept try against the run of play.

Gordon's two tries at the death though but the nail in the coffin to mark the club's first win on the road so far in 2013.

Gold Coast Titans 28 (K Gordon 2, G Bird, D Mead, S Michaels tries; A Sezer 4 goals) defeated PENRITH PANTHERS 10 (W Naiqama, T Humbles tries; W Naiqama goal).
